Case Foundation's Breaking News in Social Good

This week in Breaking Good, Jean Case shares how citizens are at the center of some of the positive signs we are seeing in the wake of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Breaking Good explores how leaders in tech can make the system work better for female founders, how local communities are creating innovative solutions and a first look at a new book Innovation Blind Spot.


In Inclusive Entrepreneurship, Melinda Gates is taking a bold stand, reminding us that gender and race disparities in venture capital need our immediate attention. We’re also hearing about the importance of immigrant entrepreneurs and seeing the stories of founders putting their mission at the center of their business.


In Impact Investing, a local Tennessee group is helping women and entrepreneurs of color gain B Corporation certification for their businesses. An investment leader shares an opportunity investors are missing. And Fortune's Change The World list highlights the inclusion of major players in Impact Investing and financial inclusion.


And on Faces of Founders, we spotlight founder Helen Adeosun of CareAcademy and learning about how she fundraised for her elder care training company.


In addition, if you’re looking for inspiration, be sure to check out our new Facebook Watch show, Be Fearless. Read on for more information on how to make sure you don’t miss an episode.
